One of the most coveted bags to exist, the Hermes
Birkin is on every fashionista’s wishlist. The investment
return is not just in money alone, the unforgettable
style and handcrafted finesseoutshines in this popular bag,
just ask Jamie Chua or Kylie Jenner who both
have some of the largest Birkin collections
in the world as of 2019.  




Much like the Birkin, a Kelly is difficult to come by but
definitely worth the wait. Originally designed in the
1930’s by Robert Dumas, this trapezoid shaped bag
was then renamed in honor of Grace Kelly, Princess of
Monaco, in the 1950’s after a photo of her holding the
bag to conceal her early pregnancy went viral. Classic
yet inherently modern, the Kelly bag is the perfect
return in investment for many years to come.
